Just to make it official: "go ahead" ;-)
Eduard, I'm really sorry I haven't responded recently but I've been
following your work on apt-cacher and I certainly appreciate your
efforts. In recent times I've been even more of a pathetic excuse for a
DD than usual, so I apologise for that. There is a whole litany of
excuses including those already mentioned by Martin: I'm now President
of Linux Australia (a position involving much more work than it may
appear), I'm working on 3 more books, spent the last few months
organising Debian Miniconf4, have a newish baby son, am on 5 (IIRC)
management or advisory boards, am part of upstream for a bunch of
projects, and am trying to run a business that's so frantically busy I
can't hire people fast enough.
So since you've shown so much interest and initiative, you're welcome to
either adopt or co-maintain Apt-cacher as you prefer. It still has
personal interest for me but obviously you're in a better position to
give it the attention it deserves right now.
